Content, as they say, is king.  And finding the right movie for your kids is harder than ever. How many times have you said, “Movie night?” and been met with resounding approval and excitement from your clan, only to spend the next thirty minutes fighting over what to watch?  Between Netflix, Amazon, Comcast, HBO Go, iTunes, etc… freedom is too many choices. And then what happens? Your kids go for the low-hanging fruit of some crappy made for Netflix movie and you waste two hours of their lives watching dreck.

Finding quality content for your kids is a major theme here at CHILLDAD. To that end, we scoured the internet for compilation lists of “Best Movies” for kids.  This one from Boys’ Life magazine struck us as covering the gambit from mature, thought-provoking entertainment, to animated Disney classics, to gems from the 80s that still hold up today. The age range is broad, from 5 on up, but you can’t go wrong with anything on this list. If your kids fight you on it, force them to watch for 20 minutes and then offer them the option to bail. With this list, they’ll most likely be hooked by then.

Although tailored for boys, there are plenty of films on here that daughters will enjoy, too.
